Nottingham Trent University (NTU) women academic thought leaders are often featured in the media for their insight and expertise.

Working for NTU offers exciting and purposeful academic career paths, like that of female academic Dr Heather Alberro, Lecturer in Global Sustainable Development for NTU School of Arts and Humanities.

NTU is the UK's third most sustainable university and an environmentally-conscious employer. Heather reinforced this commitment to sustainability, speaking with The Conversation about why proposed changes to the UK's policing bill will affect climate activism.

Heather joined 400 other experts and signed an open letter warning of mounting government criminalisation of environmental protectors around the world.
